#Whisky: An Introduction
In the last few years whisky - spelled whisky by the Scottish/rest of the world and spelled whiskey by the Irish and Americans - has enjoyed a cultural resurgence, especially among women. Maybe it was spurred by the Mad Men TV show? What's clear is that whisky, scotch, bourbon and rye are popular and here to stay.
Trying to understand the nuances of whisky can be intimidating. For a quick intro, check out this hilarious video by Richard Paterson, Master Distiller of Dalmore Whisky: How to Drink Whisky Like a Sir. If you are in New York City and want an in-person tutorial, check out the FlatIron Room's Whisky School. We tried the "Whiskey 101" class with friends - a fun evening with small bites and an excellent whisky tasting. Whether you're a connoisseur or a novice, you can pick up some tips and be the Don Draper or Joan Holloway of the bar. Can't make it to New York? Don't worry, Richard Paterson has more YouTube tutorials for your viewing pleasure.
